Introduction: Gallbladder diseases are the major causes of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Majority of the diseases are related to gallstones. Gallstone disease is a risk factor for the development of gallbladder carcinoma.
Aims and Objectives: The objective is to study the morphological spectrum of neoplastic diseases in gallbladder, and to note the frequency of malignant neoplasms.
Materials and Method: The study was conducted on cholecystectomy specimens received in centrallaboratory, Department of Pathology, KIMS, Bengaluru from July 2009 to June 2014.
The cholecystectomy specimens received in 10% formalin were examined in detail for gross and microscopic changes. Neoplasms were studied and categorized.
Results: There were 700 cholecystectomy specimens received for histopathological study. There were 17 cases of neoplasms of which 6 were adenomas and 11 were carcinomas. Of the 11 carcinomas 3 were detected only on histopathological examination.
Conclusion: Histopathological examination of all the cholecystectomy specimens is a must to rule out incidental carcinoma.
